The GE Chevy volt is already a wildly popular electric vehicle, but that doesn't mean its makers have stopped trying to improve it.

Recently, the company announced that they have successfully invented an improved battery that has twice as much energy capacity as its predecessor, and which can offer GE Chevy Volt drivers increased safety and battery lifespan. The new battery makes use of a brand new type of battery-electrode material that puts their prototype well beyond the competition.

The GE Chevy Volt is just one more victory for EV proponents around the world, as the technology becomes increasingly cheaper, more reliable, and efficient with each passing day.
